The populations of mykizha Parasalmo (O.) mykiss from western and eastern coasts of Kamchatka were studied by restriction analysis of a fragment of fish mitochondrial genome that included the control region and the region of the cytochrome b gene ( cytb). The restriction patterns obtained with five enzymes ( MspI; Tru1I; RsaI; Bsu RI; Dde I) were identical in all studied individuals. Sequencing of the cytb gene showed high similarity between all samples (99.6–100%). In general, the geographical group of mykiss from Kamchatka is monophyletic with low genetic divergence at the population level. Shantarian mykiss originates most likely from that native to Kamchatka.
